'Chacha' chimpanzee gives jitters to zoo authorities
Tokyo: A chimpanzee in Yagiyama Zoological Park in Sendai in Northern Japan on Thursday gave a few jitters when he was on loose for nearly two hours and managed to give a slip to zoo staff.
Ultimately, he could be controlled after hours of efforts put in by the zoo authorities.
Sendai is a city, which will host Finance Ministers from the group of Seven industrialised nation in May.
- The chimpanzee named Chacha, climbed a tall electricity pole.
- Chacha was perching at the top of the pole when he saw the workers coming to catch him and started screaming and troubling the workers.
- He was tranquillised when he went out of control.
- Chacha got minor bruises and cuts.
- The officials spotted a hole in the fence, through which the chimpanzee made his breakout.
